Again

So.
Here we go again.
With thoughts and prayers
and Facebook memes,
we try to save the world.

So.
Here we go again.
We march with signs
and shout our chants,
to try to save the world.

So.
Here we go again.
With our blog posts
and Twitter tags
we try to save the world.

So.
Here we go again.
You know the song
so very well,
"let's try to save the world".

So.
Here we go again.
The pictures change,
the stories' the same,
but words can't save the world.

So.
Here we again.
No more mere 'thoughts'
or Facebook memes,
it's time to save the world.

So.
Here we go again.
It's time to change
the age-old song
and truly save the world.

So
there won't be an again.




(Yes, I realize the irony of this poem)
